The Asiatic Cheetah is one of the rarest and most beautiful cats in the world, living in two areas of the Miandasht Wildlife Refuge and Turan Biosphere Reserve. Unfortunately, the Asiatic Cheetah is severely endangered and its population has decreased significantly. To preserve and revive this unique species, joint efforts are needed by the government, researchers, rangers, farmers, etc.
For this purpose, the second National Iranian Cheetah Day conference was held on August 29th of this year in Jajarm County. In this conference, which was attended by environmental activists, provincial and county officials, Iranian Cheetah Society experts, and those interested in protecting endangered species, the latest status of the Iranian cheetah, its protection and reproduction strategies, public awareness and education on the importance of protecting endangered species, the role of civil society organizations in promoting environmental protection culture and especially endangered species were discussed.
The Iranian Cheetah Society also presented a summary of the conditions of Iranian cheetahs and hopes and threats to their return to Miandasht in the near future in this program for audiences. The conference was also an opportunity for communication and collaboration between environmental activists, officials, and people interested in protecting endangered species.
It is hoped that with the continuation of this trend, we will witness the return of cheetahs to the Miandasht Wildlife Refuge.
